Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Take part in QEHB Charity's Breast Cancer Awareness campaign this October and support our Breast Cancer appeal. 

QEHB Charity will be bringing in two new pieces of equipment, which will cost a total of £400,000. The equipment will allow QEHB to offer a new technique called Deep Inspiration Breath Hold (DIBH) to patients undergoing radiotherapy for left sided breast cancer. DIBH takes advantage of a patient holding their breath during treatment – this moves the breast away from the heart, minimising the dose to surrounding areas and protecting the heart.

This system will revolutionise treatment for people suffering from left-sided breast cancer and be another example of how, with your help, QEHB Charity can ensure the best long term care for patients.
